The National Museum of the Marine Corps is a military history museum dedicated to showcasing the history of the United States Marine Corps. Taylor Studios was hired to create twelve highly realistic life-cast figures. A unique aspect of the project was that all of the life-cast models portraying historical Marines were actually modern Marines. For example, a modern Marine pilot was asked to model for a life-cast figure representing a WWI Marine pilot. Taylor Studios worked with a broad range of Marines, photographing and molding them for sessions lasting many hours over several months in our fabrication shop as well as onsite in Washington, DC. In addition to casting the figures, Taylor Studios also finished them, with everything from historically accurate clothing and props to sweat and dirt.
